Bayern Munich’s new head coach Thomas Tuchel was guaranteed a huge salary.
Coach Tuchel signed a contract with Bayern until June 2025 and took the helm. He is set to receive a higher salary than former manager Julian Nagelsmann. According to Germany’s ‘Sky Sports’ on the 28th (local time), Tuchel’s annual salary is more than 12 million euros (approximately 17 billion won).
Coach Nagelsmann’s annual salary was 8 million euros (approximately 11.3 billion won). Bayern decided to pay more than 4 million euros (about 5.6 billion won) more than coach Nagelsmann. Florian Plettenberg, a transfer market expert, said, “If it is not now, you cannot appoint Tuchel coach,” and explained the background of Bayern’s large payment to Tuchel coach.
Tuchel took office at Bayern, but Tottenham Hotspur also considered him as a candidate for the next manager. However, there was no active movement from Tottenham, and Bayern quickly appointed coach Tuchel. 안전놀이터
Plettenberg said, “Tottenham have inquired with coach Tuchel, but no specific negotiations have been made.”
